Open Programme

TO LEAD POWERFULLY, WE NEED TO FIRST FIND AND BE OUR BEST SELVES

For women at all stages of their journey wanting to bring themselves more fully to their work and lives:

LEADING FROM WITHIN

We invite you to our next 3-month peer coaching programme for women, starting in Autumn 2020. If you’ve any questions about She Leads Change, we are offering taster sessions during the month of June. You can find details here.

If you find yourself getting in your own way, if you have big dreams but are struggling to get there and if you feel like you’re stuck and need a little help, She Leads Change could be just the thing for you” Participant

What is it?

Our Open Programme is a cutting-edge, transformative approach to leadership for women.  It allows you to better hear your own voice, inform your choices, navigate relationships and intervene gracefully for systemic change. It connects you to others to learn from and with.

How does it work?

On our 3-month programme, participants meet every two weeks over three hours, for six virtual sessions. Sessions combine expert knowledge, reference materials, structured content, group co-creation and dedicated 1:1 coaching across topics including: ‘self’, ‘other’, ‘system’ and ‘resilience’.

We cover diverse learning modalities, techniques and models including active listening, peer-to-peer coaching and action learning sets, relational dynamics, clean language, paradigm shifts and reframing, change management and systems theory.
